Beauty & Fashion Notes: The Buyer's Guide to Independent Art and Design

Trunkt: The Buyer's Guide to Independent Art and Design

I stumbled across this site; it's a blend of indie and Etsy (in fact some of the shops linked to are on Etsy).

Etsy, btw, has become a respectable site, after a rather slow beginning. Check out their Chiyogami page; it alone would be worthy of a nicely-illustrated blog post.

In regards to Trunkt, each category has a sample photo of what's being made, so the sections are a lot bigger than they would appear to be. Click on the sample and you are directed to a page of more samples and a bio of the company. Click on the samples here and you go to the company's website, where you may browse further.

I could use something like this:

And this:

$70, custom made, comes in a multitude of colors in hemp or cotton lycra, reversible (ruffles in front or ruffles behind; the latter looks sassier imo).

How about a purse?

They've got ton loads of other stuff on there, such as bath and body products, jewelry, items for your home, ton loads more bags, just a whole lot of interesting things.
